Modern Middle Ages Fest June 8, 2019 12 - 4pm
Mingle with time travelers from the Bronze Age through the 17th century. Try on armor; watch a fashion show of clothing from many ages; create a scroll with calligraphy and illuminated drawing; hear stories, poems, and songs; play card, dice and board games; learn dances; work a foot pedal-driven lathe; make a wood cut stamp and a brass rubbing; stamp a coin and put it in your pocket. Fighter competitions will be going on all day in fencing and heavy armor. You may even possibly try your hand at ax throwing and archery or watch demonstrations of spinning, weaving, braiding, and Tudor tailoring. Embrace the full experience, and borrow a period outfit for the day.
Look for the medieval tents and banners. Bring your camp chairs and sun screen, and enjoy the day while experiencing Hendricks Counties newest park. Food trucks will be on-site for quick meals. The event is free, but visitors are required to sign a liability waiver to participate in activities.
Rapier (fencing) training.
One Cheesy Family food truck will be on site for food, drinks and snacks. Cheese themed sandwiches and several varieties of macaroni and cheese.
